Official Nintendo Duck Hunt T-shirt

Black T-shirt with NES Duck Hunt Box Art

This official Nintendo Duck Hunt Box Art T-shirt is ideal for showing your love for the classic 80s video game, and comes in a choice of black, charcoal and charcoal heather colours. It features the art that was on the original cartridge and also the box that it came in.

As I write, the black tee comes in a full range of sizes for adults from small to 5XL. However, the charcoal heather tee is limited to sizes S to XXL, and the charcoal tee is only available in 4XL for some reason. These size choices could change at any time, of course, so click through to Amazon using the link above and check out the latest sizes. The T-shirt is being sold through the official Nintendo storefront on Amazon.co.uk. 

Now just to confuse you, Nintendo are also selling this black Duck Hunt T-shirt in a separate listing for a lower price, although it is limited to sizes S, M, L and XL.

Anyone who owned a NES console during the 80s will probably have played the classic shooter game Duck Hunt at some point. It was one of the best known games that required the use of the light gun (known as the Zapper). 

Despite rather mixed reviews and that annoying hunting dog who sniggers at you, the game has since gained a cult following, and there are still a great many fans who have fond memories of playing the game back in the 1980s. 

Being able to shooting at your TV screen (without destroying it!) was a real novelty back then, and it still remains the only video game I played at home which actually used a gun. I believe there may have been close to 20 NES games which used the gun (some unlicensed), but I never bought any of those. 

As simple as the game was, I much prefer the old school 8-bit games to today's massively overblown 3D games which, although look almost photorealistic, all seem to feature very long and boring storylines and very similar gameplay which all seem to feature crafting (yawn!) - give me some something which is instantly fun and playable, please!

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an
